Vision of art
1. Choose a work that represents you, describe it in relation to its format and materiality, its relation with time and space, its style and theme; detail its production process.
The work is entitled "Catwalk" [“Pasarela”]. It is made with one ink on paper, 0.70 x 1 m, in 2007. There are precisely a lot of "common people" watching the models catwalk where the “main characters” parade, those that come and go: the rich, the famous, those who have the means to declare, harangue, lie, deny, do, make an action and undo an action: they are the “actors” of this life, passively observed by us, by the millions of stupid people that vote, turn on the TV and buy the magazines to watch their "pranks".
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
Just looking and trying to find things that I didn’t imagine I had put.
3. In reference to your work and your position in the national and international art fields, what tradition do you recognize yourself in? Who are your contemporary referents? What artists of previous generations are of interest to you?
I consider myself essentially as a drawer. I conceive the works starting from the line and within the drawing concept. Within the national and international art field I believe that the picture is in the wrong path; we are in times of more strident things. I am interested mainly in good artists, and essentially those who base their work on the picture: Spilimbergo, Carlos Alonso, Martínez Howard, “Cachete” González, Aurelio Salas, Castagnino, Raúl Alonso. Painters like Daneri, Lacámera, Berni. Drawers of the present: Mayorga, Sapia, Carmona, Perrotta, Boim, Nine, Ana Eckell.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
I saw an exhibition by Rodolfo Azaro at the Museum of Modern Art that shocked me, because of the creativity and multiplicity of proposals.
The wandering painter [El pintor caminante], the exhibition by Carlos Alonso at the Museum of Fine Arts, for the job and for that explicit passion towards Van Gogh. A exhibition by Bonevardi at the Alon Foundation, for the surprise of all those unpublished works.
